Title: ACW Re-enactment in Europe: 110th Pennsylvania Volunteer Infantry Regiment
Post by: Duuring on December 13, 2016, 07:10:45 pm
Hello all!

As some of you might already be aware of, Olafson, Vincenzo, Admiral and me have started our own American Civil War impression around a year ago: The 110th Pennsylvania Volunteer Infantry Regiment. Its creation has been quite succesful and we now have a solid core of around ten people, though we have managed to get as many as fourteen on our latest event. Many of us, including myself, are in the process of getting high-quality gear and uniforms to replace our old equipment.



Why the 110th?

We choose the 110th Pennsylvania for the very simply reason that it's just one of the hundreds of plain simple infantry regiments in the civil war. They didn't have a fancy uniform, a distinct (national) identity or a special story; They were just Americans from Philidelphia and central Pennsylvania who answered the call to serve their country. When looking for a regiment to re-enact, we came across a photograph of small Union company; the men were wearing regular sack coats and forage caps, with only the corps badge as decoration. This photograph had been wrongly identified as being the 6th Maine. We did one event as the 6th Maine, but when realizing these men were actually of the 110th Pennsylvania, we changed our name accordingly.



Our Impression

Our impression is based on the later half of the war, approx. from spring 1863 to the end of the war. However, we also do events in an earlier timeframe and try to adapt our impression as best as possible when doing so. We are a progressive unit: This means we attempt to do our best to get the best possible impression. In practise this means we drill often, use modern items to a minimum and only when necessary, have the smallest cadre possible and try to march and do battle with all our gear carried. We also do not use A-tents, using only shelter halves or simply creeping up to a fire.



Photos and videos

Civil War event in Walldürn in early spring. Great weather and great event. Excuse our Paki gear tho.. Were getting it changed.

Doing evening skirmish drill (Sadly we were doing it wrong, but some people of the German mess have trained us properly at a later August event)

Big album: Civil War Event in Venlo/Limburg. It was really fun. We had the ability to dig and construct our own trench, which was super great, we set up camp in the woods behind it, overall we had a very good time.

We are always looking for enthusiastic new recruits! Loaner gear will be provided at no extra cost for new people, as well as firearms (with provided training).

However, due to the nature of ACW re-enactment and our approach to re-enactment in general, we are obligated to have some restrictions:

- While unexperienced people are welcome, we do have a preference for experienced re-enactors.

- Our events are mostly in Germany, the Netherlands and Flanders.

- We cannot allow people under the age of 18, mostly due to logistics: Minors do not have their own transportation and usually limited financial possibilities. We have made an exception to this rule, but this exception is someone we know personally. Besides this, we also want to keep the number of unarmed soldiers, such as musicians, to a minimum.

- Our approach to re-enactment is, as mentioned earlier, progressive: Recruits should be aware that a degree of physical fitness is necessary.



Our next event is Walldürn in May 2017! We will be part of a larger unit, re-enacting the 110th in its very first campaign: The 1862 Valley Campaign, against Jackson.

We made 3 new groups. We have made our own French Napoleonic Group, French WW1 Group and US Civil War Group.

For each we have plenty of gear, uniforms and weapons to lend for anyone that wants to join. We do not expect you to buy any gear until you have sufficient funds to do so. You can lend it as long as you want, but obviously it is nice if you buy the gear from us, or just get new gear yourself. But as I said, no need.

For Napoleonic we have about 3 FULL sets of Uniforms and equipment to lend (Including gun and backpack etc, i.e. everything). For WW1 French we have 9 sets of full gear to lend. (Though only 4 backpacks (Which is not a big problem for WW1) and at the moment only 3 guns to lend.) For Civil War, I am not entirely sure, but I think we have about 12-16 sets to lend. We are lacking a bit in terms of guns, I believe we can only lend out 10 guns or so at the moment, but we are working on that too.

I am suprised to say this is actually sounds very interesing. I was always interested in Re-enactment but never thought I'd be able to do myself. This makes me interested in exploring the possibilities. I'd love some more info, but I'll contact personally.

Well Carabino, you are more than welcome to join any event you want, be it Napoleonic, WW1 or CivWar.

And Riddlez, you are Dutch, right? Most of the CW memembers are Dutch so I believe it should be rather easy to take part. I am sure you can get transportation easily. Or if you have your own car/transport, even better.

As I expressed my interst in this before, I would like to come... However, As I told you, I have zero experience with re-enactment =P
But hey, I thought I'd just ask: Would I be allowed/welcome to come? I mean to Medingschanze, since that one is the earliest...

As for being available, I am (pretty much always) free on the weekends, it's just the Fridays that are a problem...

You don't really need much though, because we can pretty much supply you with everything until you have money to buy your own gear.

Obviously you are allowed to join us on an event. Walldürn is actually before Medingschanze, if you are interested in CW.
And before that we have a couple of Napoleonic events, the earliest one is end of Feb. in the NL.

Most events start on fridays, which basically means everyone gathers on the friday, some earlier some later, so that before midnight everyone is there. Fridays are usually quite lax, maybe a little bit of drill for those that have already arrived, but mostly it is just gathering.
So if you have to work on friday, that is no big problem. The events actually properly start on Saturday morning.
Walldürn is a bit different as it is one day longer and moves the friday activities to a thursday. However, you can still arrive on the friday and only make Saturday and Sunday. It is no problem.

Do you guys have a panner/calender for the combined events?

I'd be most interested in CW/WW1 but it'd be awesome and a good start just meeting the group. Febuary is easy to plan in the coming period for me as well.

I hope so. But we have to travel 7 hours from Vienna to Walldürn, so we are doing most of our reenactments in the Czech Republic or in Slovenia.
I will tell our lieutenant that other groups asked if we could come :P We will see.

Damn, sorry. Just looked on our schedule and saw, that we have there another event at the same time :( My Regiment is on the annual opening from austrias biggest Wild-West Village, and we are there for every year since 2000, so I know that we can't be in Walldürn at the same time :(

I hope that one event would be moved on schedule.

Loevestein event is always fun, although it might get pretty cold. If Nico has enough uniform parts, that shouldn't be a problem.

I probably won't be there, though. The Dutch 85e doesn't like me and I don't have the gear of equipment to go there with any other group. I don't really like winter encampements anyway. I wish we could use garrison houses, which is much more historical accurate as well as comfortable as it gets.

I discussed it with Duuring yesterday evening and I have enough stuff to help out Duuring and equip you, riddlez. Includes greatcoat aswell and blankets. Just need to get a new pair of shoes (Which is no problem), because I do not want to see anyone running around with these fucked up shoes I usually lend out. Not during the winter. 

If you want I can even issue you the Pokalem instead of the bonnet that we usually wear. Reason for that is that its nice snugly and warm, because it basically is a modern winter cap.
https://s-media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com/236x/0f/66/76/0f667689b69bdd85a57dc8161fa5ede6.jpg

Anyway, I asked the organisation if we can sleep inside and they said that there is place left. However it seems to be in semi-modern basement with heating and insulation. So not sure if we really want that.
I have 2 tents, so that's more than enough for us, although I was planning to sleep without one. It simply is a lot warmer right next to the fire than it is inside a tent (and for most situations, but for garrison duty, more accurate). If possible I was also planning on just building a nice make up shelter.

The orga is providing straw for sleeping on and extra much straw for isolating your tent... Which we could use to just sleep on, because its fucking awesome to sleep in a pile of straw. They also provide firewood.

I think so, Fabian just kinda appears and then disappears for a while when it comes to our events. That said, I wonder what side we'll be on during Loevestein. I think it might be French.

Wait, so is it for certain that you will be there? Can you add me in steam, if that is the case?

Also, here is the drill:

Dutch drill=French drill. They just copied the French drill - as wel as French ranks and batallion organisation.

Olafson has convinved me to come to Loevestein. I need to discuss it with my familt first because we were planning a trip, but I don't think that it will be a problem.

Honestly Riddlez, if you made up your mind about wanting to do a re-enactment, Loevestein might be the best option. It's a great location, you'll be fully clothed, probably a battle and a skirmish or two. And you'll get to meet Olafson and me, of course!

I can only say that truly the best way of seeing if you like reenactment, is to just go and do it for once. You'll quickly learn if this if you or not. It's how I got into it. And Loevestein as an event is perfect, it is not too large, not too stressed and it's a beautifull location.

Yeah well, practically every "minor" state of the time used the same regulations, just translated it to their own language. But it is hard to find online. I was searching for the American drill book on this (because it is in english) but could not find it.
For example, I have a physical copy of it for the westphalian regiments, which is obviously in german. But it also has the original commands in french. Much easier to understand that way.

It's a discussion we had in our unit for a while: should we do commands in French or in Dutch? We eventually decided on Dutch, because despite the Netherlands being basically a satelite state of France, their own Dutch identity was still very much a thing in that era. A plus was that it was easier as well.
